Grandview Park- Trail Running
Grandview Park, part of the New River Gorge National River, is easily accessible and offers runners 2 short trails that wind through a lush forest.
There are 7 total trails at the park, but only 2 are suitable for running. The Big Buck trail is the longer of the running trails at .9 miles, while the Woodland Loop Trail is .6 miles. They can be combined for a 1.5-mile run.
Destination Distance From Downtown
The trails suitable for running are smooth and wide with few ascents or descents.
Time To Complete
This is a great spot for a quick trail run, and should take around 20-30 minutes to complete.
This park is gorgeous no matter what time of year you visit. The park closes earlier in the fall and winter, and is strictly day use.
On Leash Only
Most trails are very narrow and have large drop-offs, so while the park is technically dog friendly, it’s safer to keep them around the camping areas and not on the trails.
This park is part of the New River Gorge National River, and no fee is charged in any area throughout the Gorge.
